are you testing from same machine where you host the service?
Naveen Shet 3-Jun-14 2:25am
Application, web service and database is in same server.

web service is deployed in IIS or you running from visual studio?
is this asmx file or WCF web service?
Naveen Shet 3-Jun-14 2:32am
Webservice hosted in IIS7.5 and it is asmx

may be firewall blocking this port, for testing disable the firewall and test.
Naveen Shet 3-Jun-14 2:47am
Firewall is already disabled in this server

can you brows the service from internet explorer or chrome?if you can browse try by updating web service reference by that url

separately from IE if I browse the webservice is working without any problem.

Also same application hosted in some other server by referring the webservice hosted in failure server is working fine

You local PC is not accepting connections on port 13828. This will be due to something either not running or not listening on that port.

That number looks a little arbitrary, was it generated by a cassini type visual studio development web server? If so, just change the port to match IIS, port 80 at a guess.

Yes it is working!!! I have not changed the existing binding for the website with port 80,
added new binding for the website with port 13828. Now the application is working fine.
But not sure how is it secured??? What is the problem in this server then???
The application was not working because the proxy settings seem to be cached and it appeared to have some invalid values in the server.

To resolve this we forced the w3wp to hit the remote service by forcing it to not read the cached proxy by setting usesystemdefault=false.

proxy setting in web.Config, now the application working fine

      <proxy usesystemdefault="False" />

Enable this(13828) protocol ID in firewall then it will work fine.. same protocol u have to enable in sql services also.try this.
